Q: Why “Knee Brace” Press?

A: Knee Brace Press is an homage to our founder’s favorite assistive device.

Q: What do you publish?

All submissions must relate to chronic illness, disability, mental health and/or neurodivergence in some way. What that means is pretty much up to you.

Submissions to Knee Brace Press will be open four times a year: March 1-15, June 1-15, September 1-15, and December 1-15. Check out our submissions page for more info.

Q: Do you pay your contributors?

As much as we would like to, unfortunately, we do not have the money to pay our contributors at this time.

Q: Do we have to pay to submit?

Submissions are always free.

Q: When do author interviews open?

Author interviews are open at any time. Feel free to submit your work.
